If you haven't already seen it, have a look at "Bill Graham Presents", too. Like "Dark Star", it's a compilation of interview excerpts from many of the most active people in the San Francisco music scene. It goes all the way back to Graham's childhood in Nazi Germany and puts the whole 1960s epoch into proper historical context. It's also a tremendously fun book, despite its sometimes somber topics. The extended Dead family is, of course, all through it (well, most of it), both as people interviewed and people described. I suspect you'll enjoy it.

I really enjoyed the Bill Graham Presents book.

Especially page 356 (which can be previewed at amazon)!
